A picturesque river town, Kajabbi was originally established to service the nearby Dobbyn and Mount Cuthbert copper mines and the extensive cattle stations of the region.

The Kajabbi railhead saw countless heads of cattle bought and sold through its gates in the 1920’s.

Located on the Leichhardt River, the outback town has an official population of 10 people.

A visit will uncover a landscape dotted with mining relics, like smelter stacks. The surrounds are home to kangaroos, dingoes, countless bird species and the occasional freshwater crocodile.

Australia’s greatest outback pub has recently reopened, following an extensive renovation. Drop in for a cold beer and tasty feed at the Kalkadoon Hotel.

Interesting fact

The Kalkadoon Hotel was named after the local Indigenous people, specifically to pay homage to their warrior spirit when fighting to defend their lands.
